#ADVENT: A Quirky Tree Perspective

On this final Saturday of Advent Virginia is contemplating what it means to see the same thing from different perspectives. In this case a quirky tree she caught on camera two Decembers ago at Lewis Ginter’s GardenFest of Lights.

Perspective 1: Quirky tree by sunlight, clouds on the horizon

Perspective 2: Quirky tree at sunset, clear skies

Perspective 3: Quirky tree at dusk, lights on view

Perspective 4: Quirky tree at night, fully lit

You may be wondering what’s up with four pictures of the same tree? In the daylight you can’t see lights on the tree, although they were switched on. Yet, in the dark of night the lights shine the brightest. (You may suspect where Virginia is going with this.)

Just like the lights on this quirky tree, God’s love is with us all the time. When we’re cruising through sunny days, the twinkles of God’s love may not be so easily seen. But when times are hard and dark, God illuminates our lives with love and grace.

A 5th perspective: Quirky tree at Gardenfest 2019!

“The forces of good surround us in wonder, they firm up our courage for what comes our way, God’s with us from dawn to slumber of evening, the promise of Love at break of each day.”  Dietrich Bonhoeffer

grace, peace & quirky tree perspectives
